Top Earning Websites In The World
Google Overtaken By Amazon?
Back in March 2009 one of my earliest posts here on IncomeDiary.com was a list of the the top 30 earning websites in the world
Back then the Top Earning website was not surprisingly Google.com, but I have just done a new Top Earning Websites In The World list based on stats that are now available for 2009 and surprise, surprise, Amazon.com has overtaken Google.com!
Can this really be the case?
Let me be clear – this is a list of some of the Top Earning Websites in the world and as such I don’t claim to have covered every possible website. (but what I wanted to do was give us a comparison of some of the best known websites revenues based on the PER SECOND model)
I don’t know why but there is something amazing about comparing earnings on a per second basis – it almost gives me a shiver up my back (in a good way)
I remember not that long ago being excited about earning just $10 a day, then $50 a day and then the day I first earned $1000 in one day! ($1000 in a day is ONLY 1.157 cents per second by the way)
Imagine what it must be like to be Jeff Bezos, Larry Page or Sergey Brin.
Mind you — one thing I am excited about – my profit margins (net profit) as a percentage is significantly higher than either Amazon or Google
My Father and indeed many other entrepreneurs I know are always telling me:
Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity, but CASH is king
That is something to always be remembered in any business comparison
I look forward to your comments – what names on this list surprised you? Who should be on this list that isn’t?
There is 31536000 seconds in a Year — make all of them count — like Amazon.com 😉
To all our successes
